Diamond breaks into motherboards

Diamond Multimedia, mostly known for its multimedia accelerator chips, has launched a line of system boards as its first foray into the motherboard market.

Three boards have been released by Diamond as a result of its July acquisition of Micronics Computers. The Micronics C200 ($169 estimated price for system builders) is according to Diamond, a Super 7 system board designed as an "affordable system board platform for multimedia and 3D computing needs".

The Micronics C300, available at an estimated $179 for system builders, is designed for single Celeron and Pentium II processors and is based on the Intel 440LX AGPset. Features of the board include two ISA slots and five PCI (one of which is a shared ISA slot). The board includes 66MHz SDARM and up to 384MB of EDO and ECC memory.

The last new release is the Micronics C400, ($249 estimated price for system builders), which features an ATX form factor design based on the Intel 440BX AGPset for Pentium II and Celeron processors up to 450MHz.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
